Ooops, I forgot to answer your other question. The keyway is .125
wide. I didn't get the depth measurement.

I was trying to be tricky with my digital caliper. I measured the
diameter of one of the holes for the gear post, set that as "zero"
the caliper and then measured the distance between the holes. It
would have worked if I'd measured outside edge to outside edge
of inside to inside. Oh, well. Add 2 x 0.310 to my 0.983 makes
The picture of Bert's apron shows that he is missing the clutch
Do we know if he has them or are they missing?
I have an extra reverser I could send him. This would not solve the
spindle problem. The metric gear problem would go away by changing
whatever gears he has access to between the stud and the gearbox.

Thanks Glen. Got it, also the 2.72" measurement on your later
Two questions here:
I would expect the center to center distance between FG and RG to
Am I wrong or did you just flub?
You gave the CG keyway as .125", is that width or depth? What is
I've done a bit of thinking about Bert's lathe, it may not be able
the original reverse tumbler design. However, there is a solution which is
relatively straight forward but it requires cutting the turning
original spindle gear and replacing it with one keyed to the spindle.
Attached is a GIF of the alternative reversing gear which escapes maintaining
the original center distances between gears and can use a substantially
larger gear on the spindle. Trying to maintain the original 24
gear at 20 DP or 1.25 Metric Module was going to be extremely difficult due
to the required keyway on a gear who's dedendum was barely greater than the
spindle diameter.measurements of
Anyway, I'll have a few more questions to ask the group about
the original reverse tumbler plate and how it's attached to the headstock but
I'm getting a bit talked out at this point.
